Retired firefighter killed during funeral procession
SEATTLE (AP) - A retired Seattle firefighter died several hours
after he was hit by a car while volunteering in a funeral
The King County medical examiner identified the man as Richard
Friedt, 57. He died sometime during the night at Harborview Medical
Center, a nursing supervisor said Sunday.
Cause of death was not available Sunday.
Friedt was on a motorcycle Saturday escorting a private funeral
procession when a Cadillac in the procession pulled out, hit Friedt
and pushed him into oncoming traffic.
"The initial impact between the vehicle and the motorcycle
forced the motorcycle into oncoming traffic, where it clipped a
second vehicle," Seattle Police spokeswoman Deanna Nollette told
Officials did not know why the car changed lanes.
Friedt worked for the Seattle Fire Department more 25 years
before retiring several years ago.
He is survived by his wife, six children and three
